That will mean for many that this season that started too soon, will make it too late to capture the opportunities. Plants that should have been dug and loaded will remain unharvested.
The spiritual implications of that are not unseen.
"Behold I am coming soon", Jesus said. "Look about you at the signs".
"The fields are ripe unto harvest".
"Yet...if I come too soon, it will be too late for many, I don't desire that ANY perish".
"So...harvest now..... for evenso I come".
